Yesterday I felt so uncreative, like I had nothing to say. I HATE that feeling. Today as I was browsing other blogs, I suddenly felt like talking and writing again.
Thanks to Angie at Gumbo Writer for offering up a haiku poetry contest. I haven't written haiku in a long time but I love the writing style (five, seven, five syllable lines) and the imagery associated with it. Your post inspired me to write these entries and pay homage to my native hometown of Louisiana. Oh how I miss it at times! Thank you for pushing me to be creative today.
